What the war powers obama is requesting are not designed to win. They are designed to tie the hands of the next president and keep the United States from winning.

Of course. We knew there would be a political catch. Here is another link to the story, following this first paragraph:

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday formally asked Congress to authorize a three-year military campaign against the terrorist group the Islamic State that would avoid a large-scale invasion and occupation but in addition to air power could include limited ground operations by American forces to hunt down enemy leaders or rescue American personnel.

After the US finally extricated itself after a decade of misery from the pool of quicksand called Iraq.

It has foolishly decided to reenter the same quagmire for another try.

Will we ever learn?? ....... :dunno:
